MADRID - Sevilla have agreed to loan Uruguayan striker Ernesto Chevanton to Atalanta from January to June next year, the La Liga side said on their website on Thursday.

The 29-year-old has found his chances limited with Luis Fabiano, Frederic Kanoute and Alvaro Negredo the preferred forwards under coach Manolo Jimenez.

Serie A side Atalanta have an option to make the move permanent at the end of the season. Chevanton has been given permission to train with the Italians even though the loan does not become effective until January.
